UV Copper Coho Spanker

The UV Copper Coho Spanker is a great performer in clear, slow flowing water for hard to catch Coho salmon. This pattern has a knack of turning on Coho that are otherwise not interested in chasing a fly. Try fishing the “Spanker” on a sink-tip fly line with a fluorocarbon leader using a steady retrieve.

All materials required to tie the UV Copper Coho Spanker are available at Sea-Run Fly and Tackle. Check out our Fly Fishing for Coho Salmon in Freshwater blog post.
